Message of the Chair

Dear Students,

Yıldız Technical University (YTU), one of the most distinguished universities in Turkey, has a history of more than a hundred years. The Department of Economics is one of the oldest departments of our university.

YTU Department of Economics:

• To educate students with a proficient knowledge that can be used in both national and international competitive labor markets,

• It implements a high standard, flexible and dynamic curriculum in which both qualitative and quantitative solutions to economic problems are discussed.

In addition, within the scope of Erasmus activities, many of our students find the opportunity to spend part of their education in other European universities every year. In addition, by taking courses from other departments, by doing a double major or minor, our students are provided with the opportunity to access information in other fields of interest. In addition, the events organized bring together respected people from the academy and the business world, ensuring the transfer of knowledge and experience.

As a result, our main goal is to equip you with skills that can both understand and interpret rapidly changing economic conditions and find better solutions to economic and social problems.

Prof. Dr. Murat Anıl MERCAN

Head of Department
